This square is surrounded by some beautiful buildings but it does not have the wow factor really. The are some basic cafes where one can get a drink or something to eat.

This plaza is just a nice place to be. It isn't spectacular, yet it somhow just has an ambience that is hard to beat. The large fountain adds to it as do the buildings which surround it. Worth a visit.

Good place to have a coffee or tea or drink while visiting the very center of Evora. Taxi stand. Walking distance to the best places in town.

Central square and favourite meeting place with many restaurant tables set up under huge umbrellas and looks so inviting. The square has a huge fountain one end and is surrounded by heaps of shopping. Just a great atmosphere

When in Evora, one should consider this a must stop. Culture, people, smells and sounds. Definitely a neat way to spend some time.

We walked around the square but as city squares go in Europe this one is average. However we really enjoyed walking on all the streets that run off the square. Also the church at one end of the square is worth a visit.

We spent time sitting at this square watching the locals also sitting about visiting with each other, shopping, eating at the outdoor patios. The policias are present, walking around and chatting with the gents.
